Tickets for the 41st annual Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts 2010 in Pilton, England, sold out at within 12 hours of going on sale October 4, according to organizers.

Pre-registration at the site was necessary to purchase tickets, involving concertgoers providing personal details along with a photograph to be imprinted on nontransferable tickets for next year's festival. Pre-registration did not guarantee them tickets on Sunday, but ticket purchasing was absolutely impossible without prior registration.

Glastonbury 2010 will take place June 23-27, 2010. A headlining act for next year's Glastonbury was booked seven months ago in February, but organizers are keeping their choice secret until next year. The 40th annual Glastonbury concluded on June 28.

Pre-registration will re-open on October 12 for another round of sales taking place early next year, which will be tickets from all cancelled orders.
